Movie Reviews

  • the best film about the wages of aging since "Amour" eight years ago, "The Father" takes a bracingly insightful, subtle and nuanced look at encroaching dementia and the toll it takes on those in close proximity to the afflicted
    by Todd McCarthy [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • it's a difficult, often quite brutal, viewing experience, as it needs to be given the subject matter, not only because of the fractured storytelling but because of the devastating lead performance from Anthony Hopkins; It's breathtaking to watch him here
    4 of 5 by Benjamin Lee [The Guardian ]
  • Anthony Hopkins's performance is a captivating demonstration of range. He infuriates you, cracks you up, and breaks your heart
    Review rate : B+ by Donny Sheldon [Awards Watch ]
  • Anthony Hopkins delivers a tour-de-force performance in Florian Zeller's drama of dementia; All the actors in "The Father" are vivid (Olivia Colman brings her role a loving vulnerability that warms you), but Hopkins is flat-out stunning
    by Owen Gleiberman [Variety ]
  • a stunning study of a man losing his mind; It was written specifically with Anthony Hopkins in mind, right down to Anthony's birthdate, and the actor offers the perfect blend of vulnerability and recalcitrance in the role
    5 of 5 by Amber Wilkinson [The Times (UK) ]
